Dine’tah: Oil and Gas Industrialization



Din√©tah is the traditional homeland of the Navajo.  Much of this Navajo homeland is beyond the jurisdiction of the Navajo Nation government.  This part of Navajoland is the cradle of Navajo culture.  Over 20,000 oil and gas wells have desecrated the landscape.


Located in NE New Mexico in Dine'tah near Gobernador Knob Don and Jane Schreiber's 3000 acre ranch contains over 120 active oil and gas wells.  The Schreiber's strive to bring awareness of the devastating issues of methane poisoning caused by the oil and gas industrialization of the cultural landscape.

Elected Officials Urge Interior and White House to Permanently Protect More BLM Land


On May 24, 2022, The Mountain Pact released a letter signed by 123 local elected officials from Western states that calls on the Biden administration to protect more Bureau of Land Management lands as part of the administration’s America the Beautiful initiative. The initiative is an effort to protect, conserve, connect, and restore 30 percent of the nation’s lands and waters by 2030 in response to the warning by scientists that globally we must conserve and restore at least 30 percent of lands and waters by 2030 if we hope to preserve biodiversity and ecosystems and mitigate the impacts of climate change. … “Nationally, only 14% of BLM lands are permanently protected. As a result, many of the areas important to our citizens and visitors are at risk of being unnecessarily degraded or lost.” The Mountain Pact
